i thought of a way to get him to sign over the house to me. >> lol, so did i. >> the secret videotape breaking down into hysterics at the news her husband's dead. only to discover he's alive and well. >> oh, my god. >> he's alive. >> come here, please, come here. mike, come here. come here, please. come here. >> i can't. i can't fix this. >> why not? i didn't do anything. mike, come here, please. come here. >> good evening. i'm pat lalama in for nancy grace. breaking news tonight. she marries her dream man all set to live happily ever after, but what the 26-year-old bride doesn't plan is on the hit man she hires is a cop. tonight the stunning text messages between the newlywed bride and a secret lover. >> breaking news, newlywed bride dalia dippolito caught on tape.
>> if you're going to change your mind. >> no, there's no changing. there's no, like -- i'm positive, like 5,000% sure. >> and on text message. >> i miss you kissing me. it was amazing. love you so much. i'm so horny for you. want you in me, baby. >> ouch, ouch. love me, want me, and in you in the same sentence. wow. >> police say hundreds of intimate exchanges with her alleged secret lover were sent in the days leading up to a botched murder for hire hit on her new husband. >> what were you thinking when you saw me naked? be honest. >> and this is really happening? you shocked me. >> in the text dippolito tells her secret lover she needs a way to get rid of her husband, proposing freezing his assets and having him arrested. >> baby, we need to make this happen with his arrest by the weekend. i need to be with you. hate being away from you. you can call the treasury department and pretend to be him and pay them using his checking account number and wipe him clean. >> only problem?
>> you're going to jail for solicitation of first degree murder of your husband. what do you want to do? >> the florida beach beauty becomes the one facing years behind bars. >> it seems like these text messages a combination of hormone infused, verbal, i want your body, you're so hot transactions and how are we going to get my husband in trouble, right? susan wendell-spencer. reporter, "palm beach post." my favorite one was dalia, i've always wanted to have you as my unicorn. how romantic, huh? >> yes. and she responds, and you, my anchor in my life. >> right. >> yes. >> so where did this all come from? how did these texts come about suddenly? >> various media made requests of the palm beach county state attorney's office for the release of all discovery, all evidence in the dippolito case. so these text messages were
released as a part of those requests. 49 pages of text messages of a number associated with miss dippolito and a number associated with her alleged lover. >> ellie jostad, nancy grace producer. this takes a little bit of going back. we need to refresh ourselves about this case, because dalia -- why don't you just tell us the story? >> in a nutshell, here's what police say happened. they say that they were approached by someone who is believed to be a former lover of dalia dippolito. by the way, not the same alleged lover who she's sending text messages with. a different guy. he calls police. he says a friend of his wants to have her husband killed. so police set up a sting. what they do is they tell this guy to go meet with her again. they wire him so they have this all on tape. she gives the guy $1,200 supposedly so this hit man he's
going to procure can buy a gun. later she meets with the person she thinks is the hit man. of course, it's actually an undercover boynton beach police officer. but here's the really interesting part of it. a few days later, they tell her, the hit man tells her the hit is going to go down. she agrees to get herself out of the house. they get -- the police actually get the husband out of the house, too. they tell him what's going on. and they set up a sting. they made the house look like a crime scene. when dalia dippolito gets home from the gym, they tell her that her husband has been murdered. she breaks down in hysterics. you see it there on tape, crying, just beside herself with grief at the fact that her husband has now been killed. hour, now she is charged with solicitation to commit murder. >> all right, now, this new -- the revelation of all the text, this is yet another guise. just to refresh the viewer. we have one guy she already knew and calls him up and says i want to kill my husband or something like that. he goes to the cops.
>> right have been the cops set her up and then there's a sting. now this is a whole new guy named michael stanley, the one she's texting. jason brody and josh friedman, you are divorce and fraud attorneys for michael dippolito. is this yet another sock in the gut to your client? >> well, michael was devastated originally when he found out that his wife had hired somebody to try and kill him. and this puts more salt into the wound. he had no idea that this was going on. he was looking to live with this woman happily ever after and have a family, now he finds out that she was trying to have a baby with someone else. he's just devastated. >> but michael sapraicone, former nypd detective and president of squad security inc., i mean, come on, here's what i'd like to ask you. what kind of people go right to the cops? a lot of people think it might be so easy to hire a hit man. it's not that simple, right? >> -- a person who went to the police may have had some -- he may be an informant for the police and other things. and he went to his friends and
said, hey, guys, i know something else. maybe he's working off some time, maybe looking to get a better sentence, looking to cop a plea for something else. so those are sometimes how the cops get involved with these type of people. >> but does it usually work out that well for them, with the cops? >> sometimes it does work out this well. there are several other cases going on around the country with very similar things right now. >> susan moss, family law attorney and child advocate, this is a woman who allegedly tried twice before to get rid of this guy, right? once, i'm told, the would-be killers ran off with the money and the second she fed antifreeze to michael. you think he'd get a clue? >> i love the fact that she hired a cop to give her hubby a pop. i mean, there's no wiggle room. she's going down and she's going down big. there is so much evidence, and these text messages are just more cream to lead to even stronger conviction. she's looking at some amazing time. i just can't believe that she is still out on home arrest.
why isn't she in a jail, locked up? there is no ambiguity in this case. there's no wiggle room. there certainly is no reasonable doubt. why is she out of jail right now? >> well, jason oshins, defense attorney, that's a really good question. if there's a woman who wants to get the hell out of town, excuse my lingo, it would be her because she appears to be a master manipulator. why is she sticking around? >> it's a great misnomer what the use of bail is. bail is not a prosecutorial tool to punish people before an actual trial. you're presumed innocent before guilty. bail's purpose is to ensure that you return to court on your appointed date. the issue for bail is, listen, the judge, no priors, no prior record, you're innocent before guilty, she's staying at home, she's confined. he doesn't consider her a risk in any way. >> bradford cowen, i mean, i think -- it seems to me she's the best person to be a flight risk, no? >> you have to look at different things that are going on in the
case. number one, she doesn't have any priors. she probably doesn't have the means to escape. she might have -- very well have good ties to the community. things of that nature all come into play when you're looking at bail. there was a case that happened about may 6th, it was a $20,000 bail, same sort of scenario where a woman was setting up her sister with a murder for hire plot and that was in virginia i believe. bail is not unusual in these type of cases. it's given in these types of cases. sometimes it's not as low as this. she's on a gps monitor. she's not going very far. >> yeah, technology has definitely hurt her big in this case. do we have time to hear another one of the text communications? go ahead. >> sorry. wish we were together. i'm thinking of you. >> me, too. i want you and hank, lol. i want to feel you in me. >> ouch. >> what?
lol. are you speechless? do you want my hot, tight body all over you? >> yes, but the reality is having you. have a nice night, babe. >> what you said was beautiful. i started crying. you're the man of my dreams. my prince charming. >> you still don't know how much i love you. promise. i swear, give me a chance. >> i think now we're closer than ever. do you agree? >> yes, i do agree. we're better. maybe it had to happen. i'm sorry. >> me, too. real sorry. you're my everything forever. >> all right. susan spencer-wendell, reporter "palm beach post," who is michael stanley? where did he come from all of a sudden? >> not precisely sure, but someone she had been previously involved in. he has, you know, possibly in california, possibly in new jersey, she had lived in california or possibly someone she knew from her business as a professional escort.
i'm not whole without you. i was really hoping you would miss me. >> so i just want to make sure that, you know, this is what you want. all right? >> okay. she's walking up. she's gotten the call at the la fitness center to come home immediately. okay. look at the other cops. this is what i like. they all know he's not dead. oh, god! no! no! >> do you know who this guy is? >> no. >> you've never seen him before? >> i've never seen him before, ever. >> about time she should bend over with abdominal pains. she's about to collapse out of grief. >> i love you. think about how we can pull this off and we'll strategize tomorrow. do you think we can handle it this week? >> as long as we come up with something, sure, that would be awesome. >> i love you. together we can do anything. we just need to be smart.
i need to make sure he does serious time. >> i'm pat lalama in for nancy grace. she can come out here to los angeles and give some actresses and some lessons, ellie jostad, i think, nancy grace producer. she was an escort, correct? and she must be one heck of an escort because she's got men doing her bidding for her, that's for sure. >> right, and actually police say it's not only the way she met her husband, michael dippolito, but that's also how she met this guy, michael stanley, that she's exchanging the text messages with. now, the husband had told us originally that he met her at starbucks, but the truth of the matter is he hired her as an escort. she came to his office. then after that, they started dating, got married shortly thereafter. >> brenda in utah, are you with me? i know you have a question. >> caller: yes, i am. >> go ahead, what is it? >> caller: yes. i was just wondering, she actually didn't get to do what she wanted to do, she didn't
actually get him murdered. what's the least amount of time and the most amount of time that she can get for being convicted of attempted murder in the state of florida? >> susan moss, family law attorney, i think it's in this case solicitation. life? >> it's a felony. she could get life. she could be out much, much earlier than that. the fact that they've not put her in jail right now means that she may get some sympathy. but i disagree with what you said earlier, she does have a past. she's a professional escort and we know she's stupid. the fact that she was caught with so many ways trying to hurt this man, kill her husband means she's a danger to society and she should not be out loose. >> i want to go to caryn stark, psychologist. there's some -- you know, if you're into the kind of let's look into the mind of a person who would do this. what's wrong with this woman? >> she's a chameleon. that's why she can pretend that she's crying.
i don't believe she has any genuine feelings, no conscience, for sure. and she's very narcissistic. so i suspect that each man that comes along will be her dream man, then six months later she wants him dead or out of her -- you notice, that she doesn't want the get divorced. she wants him killed. or maybe arrested. >> well, it's interesting, jason brodie, who is the divorce and fraud attorney for michael dippolito. one guy she's talking about having him murdered, but with the second guy you don't hear anything about killing. you just hear let's set him up, let's get his money, let's get his house. and do you intend to retaliate legally somehow against her? >> everything that you're talking about in the text messages is in our petition for dissolution of marriage. and we're alleging that the whole marriage was an absolute fraud and it was nothing more than that. and she tried different ways to get his money, get his home. when none of that worked she resorted to the last part, which
we all know about, and that's to try to hire somebody to kill him. >> josh friedman, very, very quickly, does your client love this woman? >> our client is devastated with what he's learning. it is difficult for someone to love someone who we read about wanting to take your assets and basically marry you for your assets, for your house, for your money. >> you promise you only want me all over you. i'm the only one who knows you and hank, all your wants and needs. >> dalia, i only want you. i promise it is the only way i would really be happy is with you. >> i trust you with everything. no more secrets. >> thank you, baby. you can and you should. i promise, i love you. >> i know you do. [ female announcer ] breathe right asks... [ woman ] could i ask you to strip on the street?
to name your price. is that even possible? uh, absolutely. trade? and i still get great service? more like super great. oh, you have a message. "hello." calculator humor. i'll be here all week. i will -- that was my schedule. the freedom to name your price. now, that's progressive. call or click today. really. lol. i miss you. >> i'm glad. miss you. >> happy to hear that. i'm smiling soulmates. >> wow, i want you. >> just know no one has ever made me feel the way you have.
you always spoiled and romanced me and i loved it. >> i was truly in love with you. so crazy about you. and have never felt that before or after you. >> thank god for that. >> i'm pat lalama in for nancy grace. i want to go to caryn stark. very quickly, caryn, most likely she didn't love this guy more than her husband, correct? >> she's not capable of love. we're talking about somebody who lives in a delusional world. she thinks she's going to love everybody and they're going to rescue her, but this is not a person who has real feelings. she was an escort. you know, one man or the next man. she's able to detach very easily. >> i want to get leigh vinocur. m.d. university of maryland. school of medicine. she allegedly tried to poison her husband with antifreeze. what's that likely to do to one's body? because apparently he was sick and was sicked for a while after he sipped it.
>> yeah, it's not the most toxic of poisons to choose, but it slowly poisons your kidneys. you form -- when you break down the antifreeze first you act drunk initially and you're not sure what's going on. but it's very sweet tasting. so people can defect that there's something sweet. then what happens is the glycolic acid, which is the breakdown product of ethylene glycol, that poisons your kidneys and essentially you need dialysis. sometimes it's only temporary that you need the dialysis. sometimes if it's very severe poisoning, you might have irreparable damage to your kidneys. >> jason brodie, divorce and fraud attorney for michael dippolito. gee whiz, after that he did not figure he might not be living with such a great woman? or he might have other enemies. or did none of this dawn on him? >> none of this dawned on him until after the fact. if it had, he wouldn't have been put in the position he was.
hey there, this is your lamp. why don't you show the lady how romantic you can be by turning me off? you'll set the mood while using a lot less energy. maybe later you can hook me up with a cfl. it will show how much you care for the environment.

no. no. >> 26-year-old dalia dippolito tried to pay a hit man to kill her husband. turns out that hit man was an undercover police officer, tipped off by a confidential informant. >> i didn't do anything. we need to strategize. >> and i didn't plot anything. >> we need to make this happen. >> i overlooked a lot of things. >> do you approve of my boobs?
>> you try to see the best in people. >> next we need to figure out his account. >> it's 10:50. i should have been dead at like 9:00. >> i'm not going change my mind. i'm 5,000% sure. >> saying she's 5,000% sure. >> 5,000% sure. >> i want it done. >> she had been dealing with an undercover police officer posing as a hit man. >> ah, yes. >> her your husband is well and alive. >> i love you. think about how well we can pull this off. >> i invoke my right to remain silent. >> i'm pat lalama in for nancy grace. first guy goes right to the cops. so that's done. now she's dealing with some other guy. apparently, though, susan spencer-wendell, reporter "palm beach post," not talking to him about murdering her husband, but trying to take his money and calling the department of treasury and defrauding him, correct? >> correct. in the text messages, it's largely about urging him to call the department of treasury. can you imagine? calling the department of treasury.
and ways for him to violate his probation. viewers might remember michael dippolito is on probation. he will be on probation for a very long time, having gone to prison. and miss dippolito and her alleged lover plotted in the text messages how to get him arrested for violating that probation. where to plant the drugs, what kind of felony would be the best kind of felony to violate his probation and send him to prison for a long time. but they never expressly, expressly talked about killing him. >> right. and michael sapraicone, former nypd detective, that's still a crime, is it not? what could he ultimately be charged with? >> i guess he could be charged in aiding and abetting in the crime. he's part of the crime. you don't have to be the person who pulled the trigger to be charged with the crime. probably charged with the attempted murder also. i don't know, i'm not sure too
here either, pat, is this person, stanley, is she the firt guy she contacts or does she find out she can't get the money, can't gain assets and then turns to the lover for the homicide? >> that's a really good question. jason oshins, defense attorney, we're trying to find some kind of chronology here. it's all happening about the same time. do you get the sense that she's given up on murder here and would that be maybe a defense? >> that's interesting, pat, that you raise that. because we sort of giggle in her attempts ever so slightly to try and kill this man, not that there's anything that's not serious about it. but it's interesting. almost comical the way she approaches everything. i mean, certainly as caryn stark said, this is sun who's almost childish in being wrapped up in these fantasies of removing him. she'll almost try anything and anyway way to do it. somewhere in there is that element of trying to get her off on this in defense.
>> bradford cowen, would you use that as, oh, she's just a very immature little girl and she doesn't really know what she's doing here? >> no, that's a moronic defense. the better defense might be an entrapment defense. we learned a valuable lesson is not to marry an escort. i think that's very important. but besides that, you know, what we're looking at in terms of these texts going back and forth, she was -- the legality of whether or not to call the irs on him because he owes the irs 300 grand and she's saying he's hiding money, that in itself is not a crime. the part where she wants to plant dope on him, that would be a crime. it's interesting the timeline, and you hit on something very crucial to the defense. the timeline of when she was saying these things as opposed to when all of a sudden she switched it to a murder plot. that's why there might be some sort of entrapment thing. because we don't know what she said to that next lover who went to the cops and said, hey, she wants to murder her husband. who knows what went on between those two, because we don't know if those were tape recorded
conversations. certainly the conversation with the officer in terms of what she wants to do, that's not good for the defense, we can all agree with that. >> susan moss, you want to weigh in on that? >> i love this woman. it's south florida. how did she get her hands on so much antifreeze? i mean, each time she goes after this guy she uses a much more moronic way about her. she's going down. being stupid or being childish is not a defense. she's going to go to jail. she's going down big. and she's going to see some real time if the people of south florida understand how dangerous this is and this guy really could be dead right now. >> yeah, and i'm going to get to the timeline issue in just a second but, you know, bradford brought up a great thing. don't marry an escort. caryn stark, i've seen this so many times. men, men, men, are you that weak that an escort could drive you to dump your wife, marry her within a couple of months and think you're going to live happily ever after? >> that's their fantasy, right?
sex is very, very powerful, pat. but you don't marry an escort because it's somebody who is really capable of being with so many different people. you have to suspect that there's a part of feelings that are being cut off. that this is a person that you're not going to be able to rely on. there's not going to be any "pretty woman" scenario where she sees the light and becomes the whole different person and you know, the wonderful wife and mother. she is who she is. >> we have so many wonderful callers who have been waiting patiently. so i want to know if diana from washington is still with us. diana? >> caller: yes, hi. >> hi. your question, please. >> caller: yeah, thanks for taking my call. first, i have a statement. i have never -- and my -- i have a long history of law enforcement in my -- you know, my family. and i have never heard or seen anything quite like this. and it's appalling. this woman is so vain. and the question is she has
done and allegedly broke -- well, allegedly, it's right there in black and white. >> uh-huh. >> caller: she has, you know, done so many things and tried so many ways to get rid of her own husband, even to get him, you know? >> so what would you like to know? >> caller: why isn't she being -- you know, isn't this conspiracy to commit murder? why isn't she getting the book thrown at her? why is she out of jail? this is just appalling to me. >> right. it's a good question. but the law is the law. jason oshins, as you mentioned before, the judge has deemed that she's in the a flight risk and there's no history so he's letting her stay at home, correct? >> that's it. i mean, you know, you analyze the facts as a judge before you and you determine, you know, just as you said. those basic elements. and she's confined to home. god bless technology that we can
keep track of people. you know, who's the danger, too? it's not society. it's really mr. dippolito, himself. she's confined there, they can monitor her, that was that judge's decision. that's the discretion of the justice. >> jason brodie, i understand there was an appeal or petition to the court to stop the divorce proceedings because somehow it was getting in the way of the criminal investigation. where does that stand? >> that's correct. we are handling the divorce case and from the state attorney's office we were told that our discovery in our divorce case was interfering with the criminal investigation in this matter. no way did we want to interfere with that case, so we approached the judge in the divorce case and asked him to stay the case. he did so for a period of 60 days. it's going to be revisited -- that 60-day period runs in the next week or so. >> okay. josh friedman, i take it he does want to get divorced. please don't tell me he wants to stay married to this woman. >> at the end of the day, he does want to get divorced.
there's no question the marriage is irretrievably broken, no question about that at all. >> ellie jostad, you were going to explain for us a timeline. we're all wondering here because it seems that the text messages with michael are around the same time that she's dealing with the potential hit man. what's the story? >> right. well, pat, the text messages that we have access to run from july 16th through july 29th. now, that confidential informant went to police on july 31st and said that a friend of his was trying to have her husband killed. so it actually sounds like this alleged plot to get his money, to get him in trouble, to plant drugs on him, maybe that came first, then she allegedly tried to move on to this murder for hire plot. >> michael sapraicone, former nypd detective, president squad security inc. what's the motivation to hire a hit man? is it usually greed? what are the reasons?
>> greed, hatred. a lot of different reasons it could be. i think she was probably looking for a way out, looking for the money and looking for an easy way to do it. you know, pat, something about this entrapment if we could talk about that for a minute. i think it's not really clear. entrapment, and we're talking about law enforcement. it's one of the main elements of entrapment is when i put something in your mind. that's not the case here. nobody put this in her mind. >> he's so full of -- and ungrateful. $100,000 in the bank. a house. nice cars. so what if he's on probation? he's been on it for five years. he's an ass. >> for him not to realize he has the most wonderful woman in the world. and with her support he can do anything, he's a -- ♪ ♪

i'm a lot tougher than what i look. i know you're thinking, you're like oh, what a cute little girl or whatever. you know, but i'm not. >> a stunning twist in the case against the newlywed bride accused of plotting her husband's murder. >> you better quit your playing. >> i'm positive. like 5,000% sure. >> after shocking police video of her meeting with and allegedly hiring a hit man to kill her own husband -- >> you say you're 5,000% sure you want hill dead. you think i made that up? >> now hundreds of rauching text messages emerge of her pining and professing her love for her alleged lover. >> i miss you kissing me. it was amazing. >> oh, yeah, wow, just spoke to mom. she's the best. >> i think we're closer than
ever. do you agree? >> yes, i do agree. we're better. maybe it had to happen. i'm sorry. >> me, too. real sorry. you're my everything forever. >> we filmed everything that you did, recorded everything that you did. you're going to jail for solicitation of first-degree murder of your husband. >> i didn't do anything. remain silent. >> i'm pat lalama in for nancy grace. i want to ask caryn stark, psychologist, has she justified all of this in her mind? is there an entitlement here for whatever it is she's doing because her life has to be the way she wants it? >> that's narcissism, pat, you're right. she's very narcissistic. when you see somebody like this, she sees the world as going around her. consequences don't mean anything. she also doesn't seem to really be that brilliant. so she keeps making the same mistakes over and over again.
there isn't a concept here where she's learning. >> you know, susan moss, talking about intellect in these matters, i mean, come on. you're texting. call the department of treasury. let's get him. you know, pretty soon we'll be in paradise. are people really that dumb? is there something about greed and narcissism that you just forget you've got some brain cells or maybe she doesn't have any? >> she makes us all look good to our mother-in-laws. let me tell you something. being her prince charming is quite alarming. i mean, this woman was going to stop at nothing. she tried to get him planted with drugs to get him to violate his probation. she tried to get him in trouble with the irs and the other taxing authorities. she tried to murder him by putting antifreeze in her starbucks. i guess they canceled her starbucks card. then the ultimate -- hiring a hit man. man, she's got to be taken out of society and for a long, long time. >> we still have some callers. i appreciate you being so patient. felicia in maryland.
are you with us? >> caller: yes. thank you for taking my call. >> pleasure. >> caller: i just wanted to know, for somebody who's so narcissistic and thinks the world resolves around them, does her husband, or did he know or have any idea of what was going on? did they have any prior, i guess, marital issues or anybody talk to any of her old boyfriends or past relationships? >> josh friedman, it's fair to say they had a whirlwind situation. he did hire her, then left his wife and married her. they'd only been together for a few months. he could not have known her very well, correct? >> when they met each other and started, you know, their relationship, they got along very well. they had a lot of things in common when they were speaking to one another. things progressed rather quickly. >> but i think the question is, i think i even read a quote from him on one of the television shows where he said he laid in bed one night and started to
think somebody's not right here. can either of you address that? >> that laid out what you guys have been talking about today. when you started talking about the issues that arose in talking about the text messages of the different ways she tried to do things, signals started popping up for him. >> and you know, i want to ask michael sap coney, the issue of the text messaging, a lot of people just aren't smart when they don't take into consideration technology today. do they not? >> they don't. it's become such a great law enforcement tool that we have all this stuff right there at our finger tips. it's all forever. not like a piece of paper, rip it up and shred it. everything's down and we can get it, law enforcement can get it and we use it and it's going to stick. it's unbelievable. it's really helpful. >> susan spencer-wendell, reporter "palm beach post," who is dalia? i mean, we know she was an escort and apparently a failed real estate person. what is this woman's story, briefly?
>> well, her most recent profession being a professional escort. you can see in these text messages that she's still receiving, actively receiving messages from her escort clients. anyway, she grew up in palm beach county, florida, went to high school here, traveled, lived in california. had tried her hand at real estate. did not fare well. and seemed to -- at one time, i believe, worked in a massage parlor as well and then turned to professional escorting. >> leigh vinocur, university of maryland school of medicine, you know, it will be interesting to look into her past. are we taking a big leap to thing that there's some trauma there somewhere or am i sounding way too sympathetic? >> that's hard to say. but obviously the girl has problems. so, you know, we've heard that
tonight on "showbiz tonight," desperate for marathon sex, teri hatcher leading a debate about marathon sex. that's tonight, tv's most provocative news show at the top of the hour on hln. baby you're everything i want and need. do you feel the same? >> yes, i love you, want you and need you. >> thank god. i'm so attracted to you, inside and out. it was great seeing hank. what were you thinking when you saw me naked? be honest. >> and this is really happening? you shocked me. >> nancy grace producer, there were, in fact, drugs found in her husband's car which we are presuming she planted.
what happened there? >> there were several previous incidents. police called them got a complaint someone named mike, we assume that means michael dippolito, was selling drugs out of the house. another time they were staying at the ritz carlton. police were surrounding it. again they said they got an anonymous complaint about drugs. michael dippolito says one time he was filling up with gas, opened up the fuel door and a bag of pills fell out. there were several incidents before this where it appeared somebody was trying to get him in trouble. >> i know -- i believe we still have rick on the line in michigan rick, are you with us? >> yeah. >> hi, rick. your question? i'm well. your question, please. >> caller: my question, i'm just
wondering. she sounds very, very professional as far as what she's doing. i'm wondering if maybe there's past crimes when she lived in california where authorities might be looking at, like unsolved murders. >> that's a good question. bradford cullen, there seems like there's a good chance there's more history than we're hearing. >> more crimes possibly, who knows. in terms of hiring a hit man, it doesn't seem like she has that much experience in hiring a hit man. it still shocks me to even hear that people think they can hire a hit man to go out and kill somebody for $1,000, $1,200. the whole thing is preposterous. i don't think this will go to trial. it's going to go to a plea. everyone involved has skeletons in the closet. mike dippolito is no angel. not to say he deserves this but i'm sure there are things in his past that he doesn't want brought up at the trial, with the irs, transferring homes and things of that nature that he doesn't want things coming up in trial. if it was me and i was his attorney, i would say do we want to work out some kind of deal and tell the state we want to work out a deal? i don't know. i would guess that this isn't
going to go to a trial. >> we shall see. thank you all. tonight, let's stop to remember army private scott miller, 20, from casper, wyoming, killed in iraq. he was awarded the country's highest military award, bronze star and purple heart, wyoming cowboy who loved the outdoors, dreamed of college in a career of wildlife management or being a firefighter. he leaves behind parent bob and susie and brothers. thank you to scott miller, american hero. may 16th, a special program on autism and handicapped children. included will be a sensorythera-fund. see you tomorrow night 8:00 pm sharp eastern. until then, good night, everybody. we believe you're at your best when you can truly be yourself.
